Who do the Habs take in the 2019 draft?

Recommended Posts

I think that if we were to move the 15th overall, we should be using it to acquire Ghost out of Philly. 

 

I think that picking twice within minutes of eachother would be too temping for Philly to pass up.. plus we could also add Shaw to free up cap space to sign a FA.

By the looks of Final rankings for most mock drafts . Ryan Suzuki ranked #14-20 or so.. 

 

What interests do we on this board and the Habs organization on picking him up at #15?

 

two brothers with the potential on both playing top 6, would sure add excitement for Habs fans for many games in the future.

 

just a thought

I don't think you pick Ryan Suzuki just because his brother is with the Habs.  Sometimes brothers work out (Maurice and Henri Richard), sometimes they don't (Sergei and Andrei Kostitsyn).  

You only pick him if he is the best player available when their turns comes up.

I wouldn't take him at 15.  The second half of the season had him slip for me.

Yes I’m under the understanding he’s falling slowly though-out the season from top 10. Commandant with your humble opinion and expertise on drafting. ( which I respect firmly) where do you have him at?

He's at 22 for me

 

Full rankings here. 

 

In terms of tiers, I find a big drop between my #16 and 17 ranked prospects.

This should generate debate - 

 

are the Habs finally set at the centre position? I think we’re sitting pretty. 

 

Bring on the top 6 forwards and puck moving D.

All else being equal, yes I’d rather a LHD first, and a scoring winger second

Sure, just will be 15 teams tossing offers at Philly, so will cost alot to win that auction.

How about Subban, JUghead McKenzie just said Nashville may need to eat $3m/yr to get it done and 76 gone.

I have him at 18 to Dallas in my own mock.

 

Since we're inside two hours to the start, should we just keep using this thread or actually start a new one to discuss anything that happens in the draft?

Just dumb question and curious, you would pefer to not post your mock picks?

 

I cant see why this thread cant suffice, but i am not fussy one way or other.

if you want forwards, you should never shy away from drafting another centre.   Centres can always move to wing and that is likely where Nick Suzuki is going to end up IMO.

I'm in the middle of finalizing my mock picks since the one I did last week I'm not a big fan of now.  It'll be one of the entries in the Draft Pool and those selections will be visible there.

Most teams seem to be looking for RHD at the moment. But I agree that there would be no bargains to be had for Gostisbehere.

I just put them there about 5 minutes ago.  The ballot is in there until it's closed, then I put the spreadsheet with the entries in.

I'm a stickler, so it feels a bit weird to talk about other teams' picks and trades in a thread originally about who the Habs will be taking.

 

But I expect I'll get over it.

 

Or I won't, but it won't matter.

 

The stakes are pretty low...
